How to understand Spanish native speakers without actually studying Spanish
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions above, you probably feel like me, when I was learning to speak English.
I studied English for more than 6 years in school. I even took 6 months of English lessons in an important institute of my city.
However, even though I spent such a long time studying this language, I could not understand native speakers. To make matters worse, I could not hold the smallest conversation with a real English speaking person.
Many Spanish students from around the world feel the same way as I used to feel. They go to school and get a textbook, learn the structure of Spanish, the preterit, the imperfect, the subjunctive, they memorize vocabulary, verbs, etc…
After all of that, they face the real world, just to find out that they can’t understand real Colombians, Mexicans, Spanish, Argentinians or anyone who has Spanish as his/her mother tongue.
The reality is that just as it happened to me with English, Spanish is totally different than what people usually learn in the classroom, in real life you will find:
- Shortened words
- Phrasal verbs
There are so many expressions that cannot even be translated into English!
Lots of people set a goal to learn to speak Spanish but most of them never achieve it, don’t be like that!
You can learn to speak Spanish fluently.
You can understand Spanish native speakers.
What you really need is to forget this loser excuses:
Spanish is just for Smart people: Don’t be such a lazy person, if you learned to speak your mother language, you can learn to speak any language!
I don’t have the time: Don’t worry about this, there are nice practices for learning Spanish effectively even though you’re busy.
I’m too old: My grandmother learned to use a Smartphone in her late 80’s. Stop limiting yourself, your brain is designed to learn new things every single day of your life!
I know all of this beacuse I am a language learner too. I know what it’s like to be wishing to speak a foreign language but also feeling the struggle of not getting it.
Actually, after I became a teacher I saw how students were feeling just as I used to feel when I was just learning to speak English.
